Everyone loves Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The writing-directing team behind 'The LEGO Movie' and this Friday's '22 Jump Street' have directed movies both critically beloved and commercially successful (the former is the highest-rated movie of the year on Rotten Tomatoes and the second-biggest movie of the year in terms of the box office). It's easy to understand why: like their films, these guys are smart, funny and lacking in any kind of cynicism.
Yesterday we caught the majority of FOX's new series trailers, among them first looks at M. Night Shyamalan's 'Wayward Pines' and 'Broadchurch' remake 'Gracepoint,' but the weirdest of all may have been saved for last. Watch former 'SNL' star Will Forte scour the cursed earth for porn and Pop-Tarts in the first full trailer for the cryptic comedy 'The Last Man on Earth!'
Phil Lord and Chris Miller may have passed up on 'Ghostbusters 3,' but that's completely fine with us if they keep making movies that look as funny as '22 Jump Street'. Today, the final red-band trailer has arrived and, in the rare case of the comedy sequel, it looks just as funny as the first.
Channing Tatum can do many things -- dance like no one's watching ('Magic Mike'), protect the President ('White House Down') and transform into a lupine warrior ('Jupiter Ascending'), to name a few -- but it looks like one thing he can't do is pull off a Latin America accent. Or at least Jenko can't. The first '22 Jump Street' clip dropped online, along with a batch of new photos and a poster, giving us a look at one of the more funny moments glimpsed from the trailers.
Earlier this week, Ivan Reitman announced he would not be returning to direct 'Ghostbusters 3' for Sony Pictures and, subsequently, the studio was moving quickly to find a replacement. Well, that certainly didn't take long.
Yesterday came the news that Ivan Reitman, who directed the original 'Ghostbusters', was stepping down as the director of 'Ghostbusters 3' but now the question is, who will direct it? We take a look at the top candidates.
'The LEGO Movie' was a huge, huge success for both Warner Bros. and LEGO (over $225 million and the highest-grossing movie of the year, so far) and both parties moved quickly to make sure 'The LEGO Movie 2' was happening. That's the good news. The bad news is that it will be happening without Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote and directed the original.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are ready to reunite ... Well, technically they already did in 'The LEGO Movie' as LEGO Superman and LEGO Green Lantern, but we mean reprising their roles as undercover cops for '22 Jump Street.' With Schmidt and Jenko now heading to infiltrate a local college, there will surely be many crazy nights to be had -- so many, in fact, that Sony had to release an alternate cut of the '22 Jump Street' trailer just to give audiences a taste of how many antics will be taking place.
Filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have made it their business to turn seemingly tired properties (a children’s book about giant food, an eighties television show about cops masquerading as kids) into intelligent and incredibly funny feature films that appeal to kids and adults alike, and their latest outing, ‘The LEGO Movie,’ is no different – it just comes with the added caveat of centering its action on tiny plastic things. If anyone could make a film about LEGOs work, it’s Lord and Miller, and that’s just what they’ve done with their witty and inspired take on the classic toys – but how did they actually make it, well, work?
